Mexican press sees fall as failure and blames coach Gerardo Martino

The 2-1 victory over Saudi Arabia was of no use for Mexico, who fell by the wayside at the World Cup in Qatar. For the Mexican press, the performance of coach Gerardo Martino’s team was considered a failure.

For El Universal, “to say that he fell flat on his face and that he gave up to the last drop of sweat is insufficient and useless, as the Mexican national team was going through a bad phase from which it never recovered and paid off in the World Cup”.

El País came out with “Saudi Arabia scores at the end and ends Mexico’s dream”. The newspaper credits coach Gerardo Martino with much of the responsibility for the fall. “Coach who did not know how to make the generational change and is now seen as a public enemy of Mexico”, highlights the newspaper.

Excelsior also highlighted the early elimination of the Mexican national team as “the biggest failure in the World Cup”. He cited that the goals that did not come out against Poland (draw by 0 to 0) and Argentina (defeat by 2 to 0) were missed in the final round.

Despite having qualified directly for the World Cup, finishing the Concacaf qualifiers in second place, behind only Canada, the Mexican team arrived in Qatar with distrust. The defeat by the United States in the final of the League of Nations in 2021 led to several criticisms of the work of coach Gerardo Martino.
